13.5 with Sintered rotor people in our area are going up 5-8 teeth on the pinion from brushed motors. Right now I'm running a 46/90 and still not geared as high as some. If I were to start buying them now I would get 45, 46, and 47 pinions with 100 and 94 spurs. Shouldn't have any gear mesh issues with those.

Running rubber tire on carpet.

27 turn, i use a trinity co27 motor, and a lrp sr, known as the punch machine and it really is a TON faster then most, but only for 27 turn and 19.. all the racers here say mod and that is to much power, but with 27 turn it REALLY wakens up the motor

If using aluminum outdrives, check that the diff screw is not threading into the outdrive itself before getting to the diff nut. I had to drill both of mine out a little bit and that made a world of difference on my diffs.


Buying an Mi3 is not the answer, every car has its quirks you will have to work through. Although IMO its a visually pleasing car lol.
